President Thieu Calls For More U.S. Troops
SAIGON South Vietnam’s president- said yesterday
allied forces can hold the line in Vietnam but more U.S.
troops will be needed to bring the war to a quick end.
President Nguyen Van Thieu spoke while U.S. Ma
rines and South Vietnamese fought together in Hue in an
effort to wipe out the last major pocket of Communist
resistance in the walled Citadel. South Vietnamese war
planes pounded the fortress.
The Vietnamese air force, took advantage of clear
ing weather to bomb and strafe the die-hard Commu
nist forces that have held the Citadel for two weeks
despite South Vietnamese efforts- to drive them out. U.S.
Marine reinforcements were called in and entered the
Citadel for the first time.
The Communist North Vietnamese regulars and Viet
Cong guerrillas fired a hail of .50-caliber bullets at the
raiding planes. Communist forces are holding out in the
southeast third of the 2Vz -square-mile fortress, once
the home of Vietnamese emperors and now a pile of
U Thant Visits Britain for Peace Talks
LONDON U.N. Secretary-General U Thant flew in
from Moscow yesterday seeking Britain’s help to head
off a runaway escalation of the Vietnamese war and get
peace talks started.
Outward signs suggested Thant had found little en
couragement for his mission during meetings with Soviet
leaders in Moscow.
Thant’s stop in London to confer with Prime Minis
ter Harold Wilson was the third in a quickly arranged
tour that took him to India before his call in Moscow!
He will return to New York today.
India’s Prime Minister .Indira Gandhi, according to
diplomats here, assured the secretary-general of her gov
ernment’s constant readiness to back any worthwhile at
tempt inside or outside the United Nations for peace talks.
Each of the three countries he has visited at a time of
intensifying conflict in Vietnam has a' significant role to
play in the peacemaking and peacekeeping process.
Vance Talks With South Korean President
SEOUL U.S. special envoy Cyrus R. Vance had a
three-hour talk yesterday with President Chung Hee Park
and other Korean officials aimed at shoring up a rift
between the two allies.
Tension flared Jan. 21 with a 31-man North Korean
commando raid aimed at assassinating Park. It grew to
fever pitch two days later when North Korean patrol
boats seized the U.S. intelligence ship Pueblo off the coast
of North Korea.
Since then, the Americans and North Koreans held
a series of five talks at Panmunjom truce village on the
Pueblo incident from which both the South Koreans and
the Communist Chinese allies of North Korea were
barred. - 1 ; i : • . , . - —’ '
The South Korean' public, press and political leaders
did not like the secrecy. It was felt that the Americans
were paying attention to the Pueblo and its crew at the
expense of the North Korean threat to South Korea,
that the United States might appease the North Koreans
and thus threaten South Korean security.
Negroes Pressure Businesses With Boycott
ORANGEBURG, S.C. The first day of a Negro eco
nomic boycott prompted business and civic leaders to hold
closed door meetings yesterday and ponder sweeping civil
rights demands in the wake of racial violence.
Bankers gathered for private talks on employment
practices and a newly formed biracial committee met in
How successful the boycott was could not be im
mediately determined. There were few Negroes among
shoppers in the business district during the day.
More than 600 National Guardsmen remained on duty
with sentries posted about the campus of South Carolina
State College, scene of an outburst Thursday night that
left three Negroes dead and 37 injured.
About 800 Npgroes in a Sunday meeting voted for a
boycott of white-owned businesses to bring pressure for
racial changes and immediate withdrawal of the National
Farmers Extend Embargo to Meat Products
DES MOINES, lowa A 35-state grain market boycott
by the National Farmers Organization was extended to
meat yesterday in the second phase of an all-commodity
withholding action aimed at boosting prices.
The meat embargo was called one month after the
NFO instructed its members to hold corn, oats, wheat, rye
soybeans and sorghums off the market until prices reached
The final phase of the action, a milk sales boycott, is
planned at an as yet unscheduled date, said NFO president
Oren Lee Staley.
The organizatibn urged its members to hold cattle,
hogs and sheep from packing houses until prices rise as
much as six cents a pound.
“We’re prepared to hold whatever time it takes,” said
Staley. How long the action lasts will depend on the
desire of the packing industry to fight.”
Teachers' Organization Threatens Strike
HARRISBURG Pennsylvania school teachers were
advised yesterday to cool their angry threat of a one
day strike and demonstration March 4 in pressing for
higher starting salaries.
It was the Pennsylvania State Educators Associa
tion’s 1,000-member House of Delegates which over
whelmingly approved a resolution last Saturday calling
for a demonstration in Harrisburg March 4 by 25 per
cent of'the organization’s 80,000 membership.
Those teacher members \hho did not protest in the
Capital were advised to take March 4 off for “profes
sional seminars” back home.
The teachers are fighting for a new bill which
would increase starting salaries from $4,500 to $6,000
over three years.
Legislative leaders, who preferred not to be drawn
into a public argument with the teachers, generally
were agreed that a protest in Harrisburg would do little
to speed up passage of the measure.
Abel Quits Americans for Democratic Action
PITTSBURGH President I. W Abel of the United
Steelworkers quit the board of the Americans for Demo
cratic Action (ADA) yesterday because the ADA isn’t
backing President Johnson for reelection.
In a wire to ADA Chairman John K. Galbraith, the
president of the 1.2 million member steel union said: “The
• board’s repudiation of President Johnson on the basis of
a single issue in a time of national concern and commit
ment, while ignoring the President’s overall record of ac
complishment in areas of traditional concern to ADA, is
unwarranted, unrealistic, shortsignted and ignores the
realities of the present political situation.”
The ADA board, meeting in Washington Saturday,
voted 65-47 to support Eugene McCarthy, a Minnesota
Democrat and Vietnamese peace advocate, for president.
It was the first time in 20 years that the ADA hasn’t backed
an incumbent Democrat for president.

Collegian Editorial Columnist
State Rep. Lee Donaldson (R-AUegheny) said last night
that he would support a tuition hike of $lOO a year if
raising taxes was the Only alternative to meet an $ll mil
lion education request.
“I don’t think the tuition figure of $450 a year is
sacrosanct/’ he said. The House Majority Leader said the
$37 million increase in funds available to state schools is
significantly below the total figure requested.
Speaking of last week’s activities in the Constitutional
Convention, the ex-officio delegate thought that the Con
vention had gotten too bogged down in discussion over
the reduction of the size of the House.
He is against the legislative apportionment commit
tee’s proposal which asks that the House maintain its
present 203 membership. . >
Donaldson said that the Con Con is doing exactly what
it had set out to correct in that it is rigidifying proposals
and not operating along broad lines.
Although Donaldson is satisfied with the present size
of the House, he remarked that he might feel different
within the next decade.
“I don’t think the Pennsylvania Constitution should
lock-in a House size of any number ... I think it’s an ab
surdity to set a figure,” Donaldson said.
A large House, however, does yield some advantages,
he said. Because of a relatively small constituency (one
legislator to 60,000 people), any man with a “few dollars"
can campaign for office, he noted.
“A large House has always been more responsive to
progressive legislation than a small Senate,” he also point
Speaking on legislative issues, Donaldson claimed that
an increase in teachers’ salaries to a minimum of $6,000 a
year is “the most pressing problem this session.”
He is committed to the increase because he thinks it
necessary. “We have to find the money,” he said. He didn’t
say, where the money would come from.
“Many structural changes will be difficult without
public support,” was Donaldson’s reply to a question ask
ing him when the legislators will get down to work.
On other- topics, Donaldson said he was in favor of the
Code of Ethics bill before the House on its third reading.
“As a lawyer, I really would,like to know what I can do
and cannot do,” he said. Although he would rather see a
stronger bill, he’s satisfied that this bill is the most practi
cal, in terms of passage.
Talking of unlimited sessions, the majority leader
said, “I don’t think the legislature shoud adjourn itself.”
He would like to see the legislative session end by July 1.
But the legislators should be active all the time, he said.
Aid to parochial schools will be a “very controversial
issue” this session, Donaldson said. The Majority leader of
the House spoke at a press conference at the Downtowner
